regenerative medicine

We are excited to be able to offer regenerative medicine to our patients as an alternative to traditional steroids.  Regenerative medicine uses the bodies own blood, sometimes with the help of foreign biological material, to recreate cells and rebuild tissues and organs. The two types that we offer are Platelet Rich Plasma, ProVet® ACP  and Pro-Stride® APS.  Platelet Rich Plasma, AKA PRP, can be used for the treatment of joints, bursae, and soft tissue injuries. PRP delivers a concentrated boost of platelets, which your body already relies on, to perform the necessary steps of healing and regeneration. It’s injected directly into a joint to treat osteoarthritis, provide relief from inflammation, accelerate wound healing, and enhance recovery. 

ProVet® APC

The ProVet® APC system represents an innovation in autologous cellular therapies featuring a vertical rotor centrifugation process that delivers platelets, growth factors, and anti-inflammatory proteins in less than 3 minutes.* The collection, processing and reinjection can all be done stall side with the revolutionary ProVet® Centrifuge that weighs 4.4 lbs.

 

The process takes approximatly 5-10 minutes to collect and properly centifrugate the blood collected, and can be done stall side. 

  1. Our Veterinarian will draw blood from your horse and transfer it into the portable centrifuge to begin 

  2. Initial 60 second spin on separates cell layers, the second rotation removes Red Blood Cells,  the final rotation  removes Platelet Poor Plasma for Autologus Platelet Concentrate withdrawal.

  3. We will inject this solution into the damaged area 

  4.  In most cases 3-5 day of rest is recommended.

Pro-Stride® APS

Pro-Stride® APS is a joint injection that uses cytokines, growth factors, and anti-inflammatory agents from a horse’s own blood. These factors are injected directly into a horse’s joint to help manage osteoarthritis and/or other causes of lameness to help reduce pain and inflammation. Following a single injection, Pro-Stride® APS has been proven to provide pain relief for up to a year.

Both PRP and Pro-Stride® APS are safe, natural, steroid-free treatments that provide long term anti-inflammatory effects and pain control with no drug-withholding times for horses competing at the FEI or USEF levels.  Today, Pro-Stride® APS is one of the most researched devices used for regenerative medicine therapies in equine care. Backed by equine-specific data, peer-reviewed publications and positive clinical results, it’s proven to help manage lameness and joint pain with long-term benefits, and we’ve got the data to back it up.

The process takes approximatly 20 minutes to collect and properly centifrugate the blood collected, and can be done stall side. 

  1. Our Veterinarian will draw blood from your horse and transfer it into the first part of our dual-device system, the APS Separator Device.

  2. They’ll spin the blood in a centrifuge and transfer the resulting PRP into the second device (the APS Concentrator Device) to spin again, which will create a highly concentrated Autologous Protein Solution (APS) containing the horse’s natural healing properties.

  3. We will inject this solution into the damaged area to reduce inflammation, relieve pain and supercharge your horse’s healing.

  4.  In most cases 3-5 day of rest is recommended.
